The smaller blades of the Werner Twist Bent Shaft Paddle make it super light, quick and efficient. Perfect for smaller paddlers, women and youth who want big performance in a smaller package.
45 degree blade offset significantlly reduces wind resistance on the forward stroke for more efficient paddling.

Premium fiberglass blades provide lightweight responsiveness and durability.
Smaller blades allow for a faster cadence to help you hit those must-make moves.
Down-turned blades enter the water sooner for more initial power and won't get in your way for free-style moves.
Small diameter shaft option is ideal for smaller hands.
Small shaft option is available. To know if you need a small diameter shaft, measure your hand from the base of the palm to the tip of your middle finger. If your measurement is 6 1/4" or smaller you should try a small shaft. You can also print the "Shaft Diameter Print Out" in the Links section and use it to measure your hand.
Comments about Werner Twist Paddle - Bent 2011 Model:
What I love about my Werner Bent Shaft paddle: 1. Light weight yet durable. 2. Bent shaft allows me to always know where my hands are especially if I'm attempting a roll. 3. The grip I purchased is a small shaft. As a female kayaker this is a HUGE benefit. It never slips out of my hand. 4. The added price of a bent shaft is definitely worth it!
The only thing to consider is that the blade doesn't appear to be as indestructible as other paddles. I plan to attach a rubber "blade saver" to maintain the blade.
